Get the look: Stylin’ in stripes

April 27, 2009

picture-101Remember my friend Amanda with the super cool nerd chic glasses? Well, she is back and looking fabulous as usual. She has this knack to pull together outfits so effortlessly—never looks like she is trying too hard, but yet always manages to wow me with her creations. This ensemble is one of her simpler, laid back looks, but it is just as cute. I am a huge fan of stripes and I love the combination of gray and red together. Add a simple bangle, and either a pair of casual converse or dressier wedges and you are set to go. Plus, don’t you love that each item is $30 and under? Cute and recession-friendly! What’s better than that?!

Get the Look: Channeling Blair Waldorf

January 27, 2009

I have been obsessed with this shirt ever since I saw Miss Queen Bee wear it on GG. But, if you take a second to read the price tag, and to notice that it is no longer available on Net-a-Porter.com, then you will quickly realize that an alternate option is needed. Stat. And, as much as I love the original—backless and sleeveless—I decided to poke around for a more practical version of this blouse, but wanted to make sure that the gorgeous ruffles and girlish, feminine appeal remained. That is when I came across this affordable little number on metrostyle.com, which is a fun website to check out. What do you think of the Bill Blass top? Would you ever wear a ruffled blouse?

P.S. Check out this post and all my others on BFR!

In response to my last post on the fantastic Giovanna, a reader asked how she could copy this glorious look. So, I dug around and managed to pull up some items at reasonable prices that resembled G’s original outfit. Of course it is not exact, but hopefully it will inspire you to don these daring yellow pants and pumps!
